: I own a Steve Miller album Fly Like An Eagle, which shows a copywright by 1976 Sailer Music All Songs ASCAP, Haworth Enterprises and Capitol Records. I recently saw a rubber stamp by a company called Treasure Cay located in Clearwater, FL, that quoted "Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future". I was curious whether this copywright had expired.
Dear Ms. Journey-Smith,
Under the old law copyrights where for 28 years and renewable for 28 but renewable under the new law for 47 years.
